Description

Introducing ECHO’s PB-8010 backpack blower for the serious professional. It’s a beast that you can handle. A 79.9 cc 2-stroke engine provides the highest blowing performance available. Coupled with a lightweight, innovative carbon-fiber frame you don’t sacrifice control when battling the biggest leaves and debris.

Overview of the Echo PB-8010T

The Echo PB-8010T in use

The Echo PB-8010T

  • Power: The Echo PB-8010T is a gas-powered leaf blower. It sports a max air speed of 211 MPH and a max air volume rating of 1071 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • Handling: Like most backpack blowers, this model is technically heavier than a handheld. That being said, it can feel lighter and more comfortable because of the way it is carried, even when used over extended periods of time. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. However, for a gas-powered backpack blower, the Echo PB-8010T is heavier than most, weighing 24.5 lbs.
  • Engine: The blower is fitted with a 79.9 cc engine. Since this is a 2-stroke engine, it’s important to remember that the PB-8010T cannot run on gasoline alone. The fuel must be mixed with an appropriate ratio of gasoline and oil in order for it to function properly (for this Echo model, this ratio is 50:1).
  • Speed Settings: In order to afford more control to the user, this unit has a variable speed control. No matter the size of the job, the user can adjust the airflow of the Echo PB-8010T to match.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 79.3 dB can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Fuel Tank: The fuel tank is well above average for a backpack blower – its capacity maxes out at 83.8 fl. oz.

The Echo PB-8010T's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Echo PB-8010T compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Its max air speed of 211 MPH places it at the approximate midpoint in comparison to other gas-powered backpack blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Husqvarna 150BT and its 270 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • If air volume is an important feature, the PB-8010T by Echo will not disappoint. Its airflow maxes out at 1071 CFM (cubic feet per minute), which is more powerful than most gas-powered backpack blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Echo PB-9010T, with 1110 CFM, could be in your good books.

    I’ve used this blower for two seasons now. We live on a heavily wooded piece of property, and try to keep the two acres surrounding our house clear of leaves. I’ve owned a few blowers, and nothing beats the 8010T. Period. The power, air volume and dependability (minimal maintenance + one stroke start) can’t be beat. I’ve used this for spring and fall this year for eight hour days / one week at a time, and it simply makes short work out of big jobs. YOU MUST wear hearing protection. No way around it when you’re strapping a 79.9 cc two stroke motor to your shoulders.

    + PROS: It tips the pricing scale a bit, but it's a beast.
    - CONS: None

    I own Stihl everything.. except my backpack blower. This unit blows its competitors away. Im very impressed with its power. Fuel capacity is nice. Fan on my back is like sprinkles on the ice cream sundae.

    + PROS: All of it
    - CONS: Add a middle belly center strap on the new one. I make my own. To clip to the shoulder straps
